Canaria

Canaria

There are two micro-climates on Gran Canaria Island: the dry, warm south and the wet, cool north. But the weather contrast doesn’t stand in the way of its popularity among tourists. Likewise with the Canaria cocktail. This is a good mix of contrasting flavors: bitter, sour grapefruit and lime juice with sweet orange syrup.

Victoria

Victoria

This is an improved version of the Four-in-Hand knot with an additional turn of the wide end across the knot. This turn makes the Victoria knot longer and wider which is good for shirts with wide collars. Take into account that due to its simple structure the knot tends to work loose and will require adjustment during the day. The Victoria knot uses a bit more length of the tie than the Four-in-Hand, which can also be beneficial in case the tie is too long.

Enclosed Backhanded Hitch

Enclosed Backhanded Hitch

This knot grips itself tighter than the simple Backhanded Hitch, doesn’t require seizing and doesn’t slip along a pole. This feature allows it to hold securely in situations when the direction of the pull varies. For additional security pull the knot tight before seizing.

Cuba Libre

Cuba Libre

The Cuba Libre cocktail was created in a Havana club in 1900 and named in honor of the struggle for Cuban independence from Spain. But real fame came to the cocktail twenty years later during the U.S. Prohibition of alcohol. The Cuba Libre was a suitable drink for smuggling; rum’s flavor and odor can’t be detected because of the addition of cola.

Let’s begin a 3D drawing! If you don't have any previous experience with this kind of picture, we suggest you start with the simplest drawings, for example, a circle. When learning to draw in 3D, it’s best to use simple pencils with different grades of lead. If you can, acquire a special kit. Soft lead pencils make a darker and thicker line; hard lead pencils a thinner and lighter line. In addition, when drawing in 3D you must sometimes bear down harder and sometimes more lightly.

Self-tightening Half Hitch

Self-tightening Half Hitch

This ancient hitch is the simplest of all binding knots. It is actually an overhand knot tied around, or through, the object with its running end on the upside. It stays tied only under a constant strain on the standing part. The Self-tightening Half Hitch can be used for hanging static loads, such as grain sacks.

Flower

This simple flower looks like a child’s drawing. First the first circle, then the second circle. That’s how the flower’s petals are made. Choose medium-sized round seed beads so the flower will be neat. In the instructions below, the flower has one leaf, but you can add the second one at the opposite side of the stem. Then the beadwork will look more beautiful.
